BoatPAC exceeds fundraising goal

Publish date:

The National Marine Manufacturers Association announced that BoatPAC exceeded its 2018 fundraising goal of $200,000. The political action committee raised nearly $202,000 from 348 donors – up from $154,000 and 312 donors in 2017.

BoatPAC, the federal action committee of the NMMA and Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, supports the elections of candidates to the U.S. Congress who are strong advocates for recreational boating.

“We are extremely grateful to everyone who helped BoatPAC surpass its ambitious 2018 fundraising benchmark,” said Thom Dammrich, NMMA president, in today’s Currents e-newsletter. “Thanks to this generous support, we have cultivated new, important relationships with members of Congress to help ensure the industry’s priorities are front and center in Washington, D.C.”

BoatPAC has increased its 2019 goal to $250,000. “It’s a level that will make our advocacy efforts even more formidable,” said Dammrich.
